  1. I hope they sent an X01 chainring… no one seems to have stock.

  2. So what IS the price of X01?

    I would like to know!

  3. I find myself liking that Spesh. Must resist the temptation of big wheels 🙂

  4. obvious tap joke…

    *doesn’t get*

    {It’s the ‘this one goes to 11’ line from Spinal Tap joke – Rock Ed}

  5. good grief!
    A £300 cassette, a £1,600 wheelset and a £400 GPS!

    Who are your reviews aimed at these days? Donald “the Hair” Trump bored of golf now?
